6:01am
black and orange for today's big victory parade. that starts in just a couple of hours and people already packing trains and buses to get into the city. we have live team coverage. cbs 5 reporter anne makovec on the left with beefed up patrols for the rowdy fans but first we kick it off with cate caugiran along the parade route with people already staking out seats for the parade. isn't that right? i can see them behind you. >> reporter: you think we wake up early? true giants fans wake up earlier than us. people are already lining up on market street where the parade route will begin so they have been here and ready for it and so has the city. the city has been setting up. you can take a look they have been working nonstop to set up the big stage for our world series champs at the civic center plaza. giants president larry baer, bruce bochy, pablo sandoval will be given speeches. bay area transit groups have been hard at work with all
6:02am
hands on deck. they have been advising fans along with giants pride to be patient today. >> we have all hands on deck. we're not holding anything back. we're going to have every, single train that's available starting at 4 a.m. until the end of service. >> reporter: this is a celebration familiar to the bay area. so if it's anything like 2010's big celebration, we can expect about a million people to take part in the parade. so really mass transit is the best way to get here. bart plans to expand rush hour service for the entire day. there will be extra trains on the caltrain system and muni, also planning extra shuttles, and the golden gate bridge district is putting extra ferries on the schedule. here's a look at the parade route today. it starts at the foot of market street and go straight to city hall. that's where you will see that major stretch of traffic is blocked but that's not stopping giants fans from being here. you can see this whole group right here behind me just got
6:03am
here staking out their spots. so again, this is only the beginning of where the parade will start. i understand it's going to end at civic center plaza and that's where we finds my colleague anne makovec. >> reporter: the fans are dribbling in here, as well. we have seen dozens come in just a couple of hours that we have been here. you can see them behind me, this lawn is going to be full for a big party starting at the end of the parade at around 12:30 this afternoon. and it should be a fun time but if anyone gets out of line, the police and city prosecutors plan to go after them big time after several hot spots of vandalism and violence in the city broke out on sunday night. graffiti, smashed windows, trash can fires. now, there was a picture that got a lot of attention. police say the man in the picture that you're about to see, 22-year-old gregory tyler graniss of san francisco, was identified after some tips came in from people who saw the photo circulated on social
6:04am
media. it was reposted about 18,000 times. the transit bus there was also torched. graniss was arrested yesterday on felony vandalism charges as well as injuring or destroying a passenger transit vehicle. >> there is a mob mentality damaging the bus. then there's a mob mentality online, go get this guy. >> should be a happy time with people celebrating, you know, celebrating with each other, not messing up public property. >> reporter: so far 36 people were arrested for sunday's violence. 23 for felonies. and there will probably be more arrests to come. the city attorney and d.a. say they are also going to seek civil litigation and monetary restitution against these people who help pay for the damage. and they are also on the lookout for counterfeit goods. we have seen a lot of guys selling giants hats and t- shirts along market street. so if that is counterfeit, which it likely is if it's being sold alongside the street, police are saying that they will go after those
6:05am
people, as well. so buyer beware. live in san francisco, anne makovec, cbs 5. >> thank you. where there's giants fans, the cameras often follow. caltrain just tweeted this photo of ladies in orange tutus. both heading to the operate route sporting world series tops, as well. you can watch special coverage. parade of champions right here at cbs 5 at 11:00. we are also going to stream it live through the web if you are sitting in the office and can't get out. cbssf.com for you folks. >> yeah. we are going to be out there at the civic center, as well. >> we are. >> it's going to be fun. >> with a million of our fans and friends. >> oh, boy. lots of people expected out there. so lawrence, we have the parade and trick or treating tonight. >> a lot going on in the bay area. so many people coming in to see the parade today. it's going to be something else. i think the weather will be okay. a little tricky on the forecast. we have a lot of clouds, most of that just some fog and some dense fog approaching the coastline. some drizzle out toward the beaches. temperatures mainly in the 50s at this hour. but as we head toward the
6:06am
afternoon, we actually have a storm coming in our direction and i think, yeah, we're going to see some rain today. i think it's going to hold off for the parade but trick or treat, may not be so lucky as the storm system is beginning to make its way into the northern part of the state. temperatures in the afternoon usually in the 60s and 70s below the average with all the cloud cover. increasing clouds throughout the day. plan on 3 to 8 degrees below average. highs in the 60s. rain is on the way. we'll talk about that in a moment. let's check the roads with elizabeth. >> we are going to check bridges across the bay area. so far, so good. couple of earlier accidents we were watching have all been cleared. here's a live look at the golden gate bridge. where you can see things are flowing nicely into san francisco towards doyle drive. it's going to be busy this morning. to beat the rush, head out now. use mass transit to avoid bigger delays in the city because of the parade. bart is ramping up service with longer commuter trains all day long. a lot of muni lines are also going to be impacted including all those lines heading through market, mission, that's where
6:07am
the parade route is coming through. caltrain and ferries are also great ways to get into san francisco. that is a check of your "timesaver traffic." back to you guys. >> thank you. all along the east coast and into the midwest, the recovery from super storm sandy continues. at least 55 people are dead due to sandy, more than 6 million homes and businesses are still without power right now down from 8.5 million at its worst. experts say the total cost could hit $50 billion. cbs reporter ines ferre is in new york where the city is beginning to bustle once again. reporter: the storm moved away from the shore but the devastation left behind is obvious. homes buried or destroyed, boats toss add shore. -- boats tossed ashore. >> very difficult day. >> reporter: the national guard spent the day rescuing stranded residents in moonachie and little ferry, new jersey. tidal surge up the hackensack river pushed five feet of water into the two towns in just 45 minutes. >> within a matter of minutes where the basements are
6:08am
completely flooded. we're just waiting for this rescue. >> reporter: president obama will tour the devastation in new jersey today. >> the most important message i have for them is that america is with you. >> reporter: it could take days or weeks to restore power to the 8 million people who lost electricity. >> how are you going to stop water? >> reporter: in new york, some subway lines and tunnels are still flooded. officials say it could be days before the trains are running again. signs of life are returning not too far from me, the new york stock exchange will be back up and running. traders say it's important to show the world that new york is open for business. >> we have a plan for recovery and that recovery is already beginning. >> reporter: flight operations will resume at jfk and newark airports today. but laguardia was badly damaged and will remain closed. for some, the recovery will take months, possibly even years. a fire destroyed more than 80 homes in this queens neighborhood. >> everything was on fire, flames 50 feet up in the air. the whole family lost everything.
6:09am
>> reporter: but almost unanimously the people in breezy point say they will rebuild. ines ferre for cbs news, new york. and to give you an idea of just how powerful sandy was, home video caught this amazing sight. a giant tree uprooted on long island during the height of the storm. falling trees are blamed for a number of deaths caused by sandy. and flames are tearing through a town on the new jersey shore this morning. the fire in this city destroyed 14 homes when sandy came ashore. now the flames have started up again apparently fueled by broken natural gas lines. fire crews are having a hard time getting to the area due to a damaged bridge. and we have some new live pictures of the destruction at the jersey shore. this is seaside heights in new jersey. apparently this is fun town pier. you can see this amusement park
6:10am
being flooded with the sea water there. apparently a roller coaster is flooded and does not look good there in new jersey. in new york, laguardia airport still closed because of the flooding there. but newark airport has reopened and jfk will be back in action later this morning. more than 18,000 flights by the way have been canceled nationwide. hundreds right here in the bay area. dozens of bay area flights are canceled again today. the best advice before heading out, call ahead. okay. michelle, 6:10. with the election just six days away the presidential campaign is slowly returning to normal in the wake of hurricane sandy. republican challenger mitt romney urging supporters to donate during a storm relief event yesterday in kettering, ohio. but today, he is scheduled to attend three full blown campaign events down in florida. president obama plans to resume campaigning tomorrow after touring storm damaged areas along the eastern seaboard today. since the weekend, he had been leaving the campaigning to

6:15am
bank robbery is in custody after a standoff. a bank was robbed just before 3:00 yesterday afternoon. police tracked the suspect to this apartment building near pruneridge and saratoga avenues. several residents were evacuated. the suspect finally surrendered peacefully just before 10:00 last night in santa clara. an already bitter city council race in san jose has taken a bizarre turn. it has. it' heating up. jimmy nguyen's reporters say it shows rose herrera's husband taking a nguyen campaign sign and dumping it. >> he then said he had a knife. reached inside his pocket. pulled something out and made a swipe at me. i jumped back. >> did you threatening them with a knife? >> i said that i had one but i didn't really have one. >> he says he made the threat
6:16am

6:17am
approaching grand avenue. we are already seeing some slowing. three lanes are blocked so it is going against the commute but in oakland, extra busy traffic conditions right now on eastbound 580. all lanes are back open now through the caldecott tunnel eastbound lanes of 24 right before the tunnel so that's better news now heading out towards orinda. the parade of champions is coming down market street starting near the ferry building heading west towards the civic center plaza so market, mission, no cross traffic will be allowed from 9:30 this morning all the way until 5:00 this afternoon until the street sweepers can get through and clean up some of the mess left over. elsewhere here's live look at the golden gate bridge. so far, so good. once again extra ferry service later on throughout the day for the giants day parade. with more on your forecast here's lawrence. >> ticker-tape parade, sounds like fun. if we keep it dry that should be nice. if it gets wet that could be a mess. but right now looks like the clouds are moving into the bay area. these are mostly low clouds and fog. a little drizzle, too, at the
6:18am
coastline. so watch out for that. delays at sfo up to 2 hours on arriving flights. it will be cool this afternoon. and storm clouds starting to roll in a chance of showers developing in the north bay. but i think the parade should stay dry. evening rain more likely now as the cold front moves on in. here it is, looks impressive off the coast am some of those high clouds already beginning to drift know bay area skies. the rain held up to the north will slowly sag toward the bay area throughout the day so rain more likely in the evening especially in the north bay. lots of clouds out there right now. but in the middle of the day the parade of champions for the giants should stay dry although we'll see a lot of clouds outside and then the storm sweeps in late in the day so trick or treaters could get wet in the evening into the north bay and sweeping into the central bay, as well. overnight more rain spreading to the south and maybe into tomorrow morning. temperatures expected to be in the 60s outside so cooler than normal and then over the next couple of days a chance of showers continuing into tomorrow morning and then dry
6:19am
weather on friday. i think by this weekend looking good. maybe some offshore winds, maybe back into the 80s as we look toward sunday and monday. that's a look at weather. back to you. >> thank you. there are no reports of damage or injuries from a small earthquake in the south bay. it happened this morning. it was a magnitude 3.2 quake that hit about 2:52 in southern santa clara county. the epicenter was six miles north of gilroy. a few dozen people in gilroy, morgan hill, san jose and the santa cruz mountains went on the usgs website and reported they felt it. a california surfer is recovering today from a shark attack in humboldt bay. his surfboard take a look shows the huge bite mark left behind. doctors treated four to five serious gashest from his chest to his hips. >> we hopped on him right away me and one other guy that happened to be an emt hopped on top of him and used or body

6:30am
take a look. mayor michael bloomberg is ringing the opening bell this morning. >> it is the first day of trading after the market was closed for two days because of sandy. it's a sign of strength and a little bit of hope for the folks out there. we'll have a live report on the storm in new york in just a moment but they are trading once again. but first, how about some baseball? die-hard giants fans up mighty early this morning. >> they are. a huge turnout is expected for today's victory parade in downtown san francisco. we have live team coverage. cbs 5 reporter anne makovec is at civic center with the security plan but first let's begin with cate caugiran along the parade route. and you have lots of friends behind you. >> reporter: yeah, one even lent me their giants hat. look, i have basically the most dedicated giants fancy would have to say here in san

6:32am
today the giants are expecting about a million people to cheer them on. there will be extra trains on caltrain, muni also planning extra shuttle service with more metro shuttles and the golden gate bridge district is also putting extra ferries on the schedule. let's look at the parade route. it starts at the foot of market street where we are near the ferry building and then straight to city hall. i know city hall is where the culmination of everything will be but i feel like the excitement is here this morning. >> whoo! [ screaming ] >> reporter: so i know the excitement is live here but i'm sure it's just as exciting down by the civic center where we find my colleague anne makovec. how is it looking over there? >> you know, a little more sub died than what it sounds like for you.
6:33am
we have hundreds of people gathering on the lawn here behind me. i spoke with some of the fans early at the front of the line. cathy and nicole anderson, you guys came all the way from pittsburg. why do you come to the civic center instead of the parade route? >> they are going to be stand there is and it's like the longest time like i guess to see the giants fans, i mean, giants fans they say hang out with them and i get to see the players. >> why are you such a huge giants fan? you're 16 got out of school for this. what is it about the giants? >> i was born a giants fan. there's no words -- it's bay area and there's no other place i'd rather be. >> reporter: thank you. you guys go get your spots back. i appreciate it. stanes like these ladies will be keeping an eye out for some of the trouble we saw on sunday. we are hoping we're not going to see that again.
6:34am
check out this hooliganism in this video, graffiti, smashed windows, trash can fires and bonfires in the street. police arrested 36 people so far for sunday's violence. 23 people for felonies. they say there are probably more arrests to come. the city attorney and district attorney say that they are going to seek civil litigation and monetary restitution from these people to help pay for the damage. so dozens of security guards are out here asking the fans to keep their eye out, as well. some of the posts from social media they have been able to make arrests from some of these pictures they have seen. counterfeit goods they are looking out for. a lot of guys lined up on market street trying to sell giants t-shirts and hats. the fact of the matter is this is happening in the middle of the day hopefully not too much drinking going on. and it should be a fun party. live in front of city hall in san francisco, anne makovec, cbs 5. >> we hope so.
6:35am
ann, thanks. more fan photo flooding social media now, as well. here's 10-year-old matthew with giants player angel pagan. they are hanging out at a taco bell in redwood city. rob posted this photo on facebook. pretty cute there. >> we want to see your giants spirit. send us your fan photos on facebook or twitter and we may show them on the air. >> absolutely. you can watch the parade of champions here on cbs 5 all starts at 11:00. we're also going to stream it live if you can't get out, at cbssf.com on your laptop or computer. check it out. so we have the parade and then we also have halloween all the trick or treaters out tonight. >> unfortunately we have a storm coming. it's misting outside from low clouds and fog. drizzle showing up around the burglary. the roads are slick. be careful this morning. cloudy skies everywhere you go to start the day. but we are going to see an increase in, can you believe that, in the clouds toward the afternoon as we have a cold front that will be sliding in bringing some rain for the trick or treaters late in the day.
6:36am
50s outside right now. i think the storm holds off for the parade of champions in the midday hour but you can already see it is on final approach to california already sliding into northern parts of the state. this will move in later on today and by the late afternoon and the evening we could see some rain starting in the north bay. temperatures going to be cooler than normal usually in the 60s or 70s, three to eight degrees below average. the rain come in later on this afternoon and tonight, could affect the commute, as well. a little slick out there early on though, elizabeth. any problems out there now? >> we have actually following a couple of different accidents. and we of course also have the big parade going on. everyone, fans, even the muni buses are sporting their giants pride today. you can see the sign there saying go giants. good day to use mass transit, ride muni. several routes will be impacted or delayed because of the parade including the 38 gearry, the 5 fulton, 10 towns and 14 mission and the s market. a lot of people may be driving into san francisco. we can actually see it already at the bay bridge toll plaza. the metering lights were turned on just after 6:00.
6:37am
we are stacking up beyond the 880 overcrossing already. a good 15 or 20 minutes to get on the bay bridge. let's go quickly to our maps. this is one of problem spots. a traffic alert issued for this multi-vehicle crash. eastbound 580 approaching grand avenue several lanes blocked so just a heads up. chp is on scene working to clear it now. that is a check of traffic and weather together every 10 minutes. back to you guys. >> thank you. it's going to take months maybe even years for the east coast to finally recover from sandy. the numbers are just staggering. at least 55 people are dead from the storm. more than 6 million homes and businesses are still without power down from 8.5 million at the worst. experts say the total cost could hit $50 billion. cbs reporter ines ferre is in new york as the city that never sleeps reawakens. ines. >> reporter: that's right, frank, michelle. this morning, we have seen some workers, some employees, from different companies coming by into this lower east side area
6:38am
on wall street some ferries that have come in from new jersey. the first one since they were canceled on monday. they are not as full as they usually are. but nevertheless, they did come into work. the top priority right now for officials is to restore power and mass transit throughout the city. reporter: the storm moved away from the shore but the devastation left behind is obvious. homes devastated or destroyed, boats tossed ashore. >> very difficult day. >> reporter: the national guard spent the day rescuing stranded residents in moonachie and little ferry, new jersey. tidal surge up the hackensack river pushed five feet of water into the two towns in just 45 minutes. >> within a matter of minutes where the basements are completely flooded. we're just waiting for this rescue. >> reporter: president obama will tour the devastation in new jersey today. >> the most important message i have for them is that america is with you. >> reporter: it could take days or weeks to restore power to the 8 million people who lost electricity. >> how are you going to stop water? >> reporter: in new york, some subway lines and tunnels are

6:40am
free rides to passengers all throughout the day today. frank, michelle? >> ines, obviously when you have a big problem, a big tragedy like this, crime, that sort of thing, especially with no power, has there been a problem with that in the streets of new york or new jersey? >> reporter: i'm sorry, the connection is pretty bad. i couldn't exactly hear. >> i asked with the power outage is looting or crime a problem in the greater tri- state area? >> reporter: there's a lot of security in the new york area especially in the areas that nighttime are dark. we have seen police cars in almost every street that we have gone down that is dark so there's a ton of security in the area right now at this time. >> okay. ines ferre live for us in new york. thank you so much. two new york city airports are re-opening today newark and jfk but laguardia is still shut down. looks more like a lake out there. more than 18,000 flights have been canceled nationwide.
6:41am
hundreds right here in the bay area since the storm struck. a few dozen flights to and from the bay area are canceled or delayed for today and tonight. many deaths are blamed on falling trees. this home video caught this amazing sight. a giant tree uprooted on long island during the height of the storm. here's why you should never go near a downed power line. this is from new jersey where a car was electrified by a live wire apparently on the ground. no word yet on whether anyone was hurt. we're hoping not. but gosh, so much destruction. >> video is amazing. it is 6:41. a major management shake-up for apple. how investors are responding to that news this morning. >> plus the youngest victims of sandy. the rush to save a newborn during a blackout. >> we normally show the big board this morning but the market is open. we'll check in with jason brooks and find out what's going on, on wall street when we come back.
